Language & Communication

In this module we speak to participants about communicating with those who share their language and those who do not, strategies for learning new languages, and the cultural differences that are expressed through norms in communication styles. While the lack of a common language in which to communicate can be isolating, participants share encouraging stories about developing their language skills through immersion and how they have developed new relationships through this process.
